Previously we had shown that allospecific bulk cultures of cytolytic T lymphocytes lysed the products of cloned class I major histocompatibility genes expressed after DNA-mediated gene transfer. In these experiments, performed by using cloned allospecific T cell effectors, a T cell hybridoma, and recombinant DNA technology, we have been able to map determinants recognized by these T cell clones to the α-1 domain of H-2D(d) and the α-2 domain of H-2L(d) (four of eight clones). Target cells used were L cells (H-2(k)), expressing wild type or hybrid H-2 antigens of H-2(d) origin. Thus, for the first time determinants recognized by cloned T cells are found in the recombined α-1 and α-2 domains.
